Meet Lauren Simcock – principle planner and head designer at The Style Est., based in the South West region of Western Australia.
Tell us a little about The Style Est.?
The Style Est. is a bespoke event styling and co-ordination business based in Manjimup and servicing the South West of WA. I’m passionate about what the area has to offer as a unique alternative to other more well known wedding destinations. In the area we have so many different options to offer; beaches, rivers, forest, lakes, halls, rustic properties, trufferies, vineyards… Something to suit any style the bride and groom are wanting for their wedding day.
How do you approach styling and planning a wedding?
My approach to styling is firstly listening carefully to the bride and groom and their thoughts and ideas on the feel and look they want for their wedding day. From there I consider the venue and budget and then the fun begins! In conversation with the couple, ideas are bought together into a cohesive style on a secret Pinterest board. We discuss other vendors, hire items, The Style Est.’s inventory and sometimes items that the couple or family members already own to bring the event to life.
With the co-ordination side of the business The Style Est. has a wealth of local knowledge and resources and are there to help you every step of the way to plan your event. This ensures someone planning a destination style wedding at places such as Stonebarn have someone who is local to ensure everything runs smoothly in the lead up to and the day of the event.
I love helping the bride and groom create a day that truly reflects them. If you are considering a destination wedding I would encourage you to come down and check out what this stunning area has to offer!
